I am a contractor
That means I get paid for 40 hours of work, whether I do 40 or more
If I do 39, I get paid for 39 hours of work. If I do 50, I get paid for 40.
If I complain, I am fired.
If I take this up with the state, I get fired and probably blackballed.
I will "never work in this town again."
I can leave, and that's about my only freedom.
We are expected to drive sales so they can get bonuses. We don't get bonuses.
Long ago they promised full employment if you do a good job.
I haven't seen one contractor go perm in the almost 2 years I've been here.
It's a joke.
Yes, I know many of you out there have it worse.
But that really doesn't matter.
And guess what? This place was recently given an award for being one of the best companies to work for!!!
If I had enough money to survive unemployment for a while, I might consider trying to unionize us.
But all of us have been well scared away from that.
Besides, there are a bunch of workers in Bengalore who would be willing to slit their whole families' throats for a chance to interview at this job.
I'll say it again....
